Watch How Close SpaceX's Falcon9 Rocket Came To A Successful Landing

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Yesterday's failed attempt by SpaceX to land Falcon9 on a sea barge marked another setback in the company's attempt to build a reusable rocket. But a newly released video shows just how close the rocket came to making a successful landing. They're definitely getting closer.


The video shows the rocket descending quite quickly, and just as it's about to land it starts to go astray. A last second adjustment almost seems to work, but then everything goes to hell.

Hoping for success on the next attempt!
